Jackman slams gay rumours


Hugh Jackman has taken a wrecking ball to rumours that he is gay, after admitting that he is ”frustrated” by the constant speculation over his sexuality.

The actor told Channel Nine’s 60 Minutes on Sunday night that if he was gay, he would not make a secret of it.

”If I was, I would be,” he told interviewer Tara Brown. ”It’s to me not the most interesting thing about a person anyway … I do get frustrated for Deb, ’cause I see Deb go, ‘Ah, this is crazy’.”

The Wolverine actor, 44, is no stranger to his effeminate side after playing the flamboyantly effete Peter Allen in A Boy From Oz. The role appears to have shaped the actor’s image, with some suggesting his marriage of almost 17 years to fellow actor Deborra-Lee Furness, 57, is a ”sham”.

Sitting alongside her husband in the candid interview, Furness dismissed the rumour as a lie.

”It is just wrong, it’s like, it’s a lie … It’s just offensive. If he was gay, fine, he would say he’s gay. It has gotten so out of whack … it’s stupid, yeah, it’s annoying, because it’s not true.”

She went on to say that playing a psychopath doesn’t make an actor a psychopath any more than playing a gay man makes an actor gay.
